By Dale Bashir on Aug 24, 2018

So far, we’ve established that the OMEN by HP is the perfect gaming machine for any on-the-go gamer. While the OMEN by HP has done wonders, a new OMEN 15 is coming to take the reins. Here’s what we know so far about the all-new 2018 HP OMEN 15:

How Much Will The OMEN 15 Cost In 2018?

The price stated on the website is at RM 4,485. If you were to attend the roadshow happening on the 27th and 28th of August at Sunway Pyramid, you’ll be able to get exclusive bundles.

How Will It Look Like?

For the most part, the 2018 OMEN by HP still retains the now iconic look of the 2017 model. It’s now mostly slimmer and sleeker, definitely smaller, making it even more perfect to bring around. The screen is now almost bezel-less, giving a borderless look to the screen. The 2017 model had this odd design choice where the directional buttons stuck out from the rest of the keyboard, thankfully this has been fixed, giving the keyboard a more streamlined look.

What Are Some Of The New Features?

It now has HP’s Game Stream functionality right out of the box, making it easier for people to stream their gameplay right onto the internet. There are also new display configurations, with 60 Hz and 144Hz 1080p for gamers to bring the best out of their game’s visuals.

The internal design of this laptop has also been rearranged, this allows for more vents to be added on the laptop and also newer. larger fans which make this OMEN 15 less prone to overheating. This is due to the new processors that are powering this version of the OMEN by HP.

How Much Power Is Packed Into The OMEN 15?

The new OMEN 15 comes equipped with quad- or hexacore processors, with the Core i5-8300H or i7-8750H being the options gamers can pick up. Graphics are also upgraded with the GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q, there is also G-Sync compatibility which makes your games run even smoother than ever.

Our last coverage on the OMEN by HP, we mentioned how the common feedback of the older model was that the battery life was only okay, with it lasting for about 2 hours when played on the highest settings. This new 2018 OMEN 15 has HP rating the battery life to about 10 hours on mixed configurations, and about 6 hours when on the highest settings. So it’s definitely an upgrade.

Where Can I Test Out The New 2018 OMEN by HP?

There will be a roadshow happening at the Orange Atrium Sunway Pyramid and will be happening on the 27th to the 28th of August. There are even some exclusive bundles worth up to RM1,300 should you choose to pick it out at the roadshow itself.  Only for these two days will you be able to pick up an exclusive bundle when you pre-order the OMEN 15.
